BENTONG in 24 Hours

BENTONG in 24 Hours!

It's been a  while since we last posted a video. In that time I reached the age of 55 which meant that I was now entitled to the nest egg safekept in the Employee' Provident Fund (EPF). We settled a few outstanding financial matter which left us debt-free, and left the rest in the EPF.

As a birthday present to myself and to celebrate "semi-retirement" I splurged a little on a second hand Mercedes Benz B180. Christened "BiBi" (for Baby Benz) she was the newest addition to the family. A mini SUV, BiBi suited our needs as a family of three. Paying for BiBi in cash meant that we remained debt-free.

This fine Saturday morning BiBi took us from our condo to Bentong town, a hour's drive away. We left our condo at ten past eight and precisely sixty minutes later arrived at Yat Heng Kopitiam situated along Jalan Dato Poo Yew Choy. A little off the beaten path this diminutive coffee shop had a few stalls offering breakfast dishes and after a while we ordered:

  • Cat's Loh Shi Fun
  • Brendan's Kueh Teow Thng
  • My Roti Canai Wrap
  • Hot Salted Coffee
  • 2 Iced Salted Tea

Our first meal in Bentong came to RM41.00 (approximately USD9/EUR8), which in our minds were fair enough. We however did not appreciate the coffee shop's signature salted beverages, and will do well to avoid it in the future.

We then drove a short distance to  Taman Bentong Makmur to visit with my parents. There was a lot of catching up to do and by the time we emerged from my parent's home it was already lunchtime. At their recommendation we drove to KaiFan Mixed Rice along Jalan Tan Sri San Siang Sun.

We perused the plentiful dishes on offer and settled on our mixed rice platter that came to RM28.50 (approximately USD/EUR6). After lunch we made a very short drive to Hotel Kristal and checked into our rooms. We booked two double rooms that came to RM323.28 (approximately USD68/EUR63) a night.

The rooms were very well appointed and spacious so please check out our video on this excellent hotel posted some years ago.

We took a nap and awoke from our long afternoon siesta at six in the evening, and left the hotel half an hour later in search of dinner. We eventually ended up at our perennial favourite, Aik Kee Restaurant. Be sure to catch our upcoming video on Aik Kee.

After dinner We then took a stroll along Bentong Walk for some night time sightseeing. Stay tuned for our upcoming video on this pleasant stroll that included K-Pop dance performances and a coffee hall.

The next morning we awoke at half past six and eventually had breakfast at Bentong's Kopitiam before embarking on a market hunt. Be sure to catch our upcoming videos on these events.

We then headed back to the hotel to pack up, and checked out at 10:00am.
